Arkansas River Tailwater - below Pueblo Reservoir

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Typical tailwater nymphing rigs apply here as well. However, some fish like to cruise the film in search of trapped emergers, so a greased leader systems also pays dividends. Low flows now tend to congregate larger fish into the rock formations.

Seven-day forecast 

River has been fishing much better, but stay deep. Not much play on top yet and water is still murky
